Thematic and genre-based harvests

The websites that make up the thematic sub-collections are selected by librarians and the sites are being archived several times per year. They typically contain websites and blogs, that is they do not contain social media that cannot be harvested by a robot, as well as online periodicals because they are kept separate. In addition to the websites of institutions, organizations and companies, the pages of professionals and artists working on that topic can also be included in the sub-collections. A seed list consists from several hundred to several thousand URL addresses. We are permanently updating, expanding these lists and adding new topics to the archive every few months.

The spreadsheet below shows the sub-collections from the archive by the status of early 2020. At the end of it, you can find two collections being selected by genre that contains websites of electronic periodicals (magazines, news portals, journals, e-periodicals, newsletters etc.) and Instagram pages. The materials of these selective collections are being stored in a closed archive in order to guarantee long-term preservation and research activities in the future. Only a small fraction of these selected websites is available through the demo collection that we have permission for public access from the copyright owner.
